One of a trilogy, it is interesting to consider the problems of a middle class spinster coping with the need to organise and protect a family business, in the face of accepted practice. Unlike a married working class woman, who might in certain circumstances, continue to run a business, most women of the middling sort were forced to step back for male relatives or to sell up. The hero is particularly prejudiced by his assumptions, and it takes a while to warm to him, but since we have already met him in previous books, at least we know he can relax!
